Canada’s Privacy Commissioner, Jennifer Stoddart, recently announced a new consultation with the Canadian public on privacy issues related to the online tracking, profiling and targeting of consumers by marketers and other businesses.

Canadians are invited to submit comments and participate in panel discussions. Details are on the Privacy Commissioner’s website at www.priv.gc.ca.

The commissioner says this consultation will “provide a forum for the exploration of the privacy implications related to this modern industry practice, and the protections that Canadians expect. Our goal, therefore, is to shine a spotlight on this evolving technological trend.”
